Greetings! I've just joined. Nice to meet you all!
Ive just discovered vintage Soviet watches and I rather like them.
I have a 1970s Wostok, hand wound, which keeps fantastic time and seems to run perfectly well.
However, when I put the watch to my ear, I notice most of the ticks are accompanied by a slightly resonant, medium pitch knocking kind of sound. Is this anything to worry about?
I don't think it's just the age as I also have a 1950s Zim which doesn't do this.
Thanks in advance for your help.
I'll post pics later if you like.
PS. Did you spot my clever use name?
